lasercutting, oh deer!

My first lasercutting Ponoko experiment arrived in the mail, and I was pretty excited. It was definitely a learning experience, as I made a bit of a mistake, even though I CADed this up in 3d! Anyway, only lap-joint aficionados will notice the error in my image of everything still in the plywood. Nothing a little wood filler can't fix! And, of course I had two of them made because I was so confident in myself, ha! Anyway, I still just love the deer. I'm so used to bandsawing everything, and those antlers... lets just call them really difficult to cut on a bandsaw, even for me, the undisputed Queen of the Bandsaw.



And here is my new lasercut boy deer with his wife that inspired him. Next is a moose and finding a lasercutter who won't make me go broke with shipping costs. Oh Ponoko, I love you, but shipping charges from New Zealand kill me!

Wow, I've never heard of Ponoko, but I will check out the link - it sounds like an amazing service; you could make so many different things! Too bad about the shipping! :)
